The LJ Situation in Time Magazine

Why Have Hackers Hit Russia's Most Popular Blogging Service?

My feelings about this are complicated. LJ is a business and also their personnel can be jerks about things. But LJ as a community has been a very important thing for me for the past several years, and to many people in Russia, it's the only public place where they can get a variety of truths other than the official line.

In any case, LJ seems to be partway up - I can now get it on all the browsers and platforms that I expect. And at the moment, it's certainly not any slower than poor DW, which is having its own issues.

Don't you have any sort of adblocker installed, nee-chan? *blinks*

I think I have some settings on Firefox to handle some of that, and I also go through my cookies from time to time and take out all the obviously ad-related ones. The only ones that really get on my nerves are the pop-under ones, and I don't see them very often.

I highly recommend Adblock Plus. Also, if you're clearing out cookies manually via the Tools menu in your browser, check out CCleaner -- you can set it up to keep only those cookies from sites you've specifically approved and automatically wipe everything else.
